will -- none of these major deals that have been struck like an libya give up its nuclear program, negotiations have not been perfect. political will to push and recognize a deal is better than no deal is so strong that they overcome the flaws that existed and i got to a better situation and from there on, worked to improve the deals further. expecting the purpose deal to merge for either side is a guarantee for failure. >> in the very back there? one broughtised no up the u.s.-iran discussions. there was martin dempsey's comments in london. opposing the obama policy. with the obama policy in libya, there have been threats by russia toward escalation toward thermonuclear conflict. how does the iran situation fit in? why is martin dempsey coming out and oppose informal administration policy? are we pushing toward thermonuclear conflict with russia? how we avoid that? understand the question. >> let's move on then to the gentleman here. thank you. >> for those of us who have followed this whole issue, that was a brilliant presentation. this is an important question -- is a rent awar

united states ambassador in libya. and, in the front page of "the financial times" this morning, the headline rains that now moody's -- the headline reads that now moody's might join the s&p in downgrading the united states excellent credit rating. both of those project serious threats to the united states. one, how do we continue our diplomatic efforts, her military and economic efforts abroad, to export, to engage the world, to explain american values and to make sure that people are safe overseas. number two, how do we protect that great credit rating of "made in usa." i am an optimist. i believe that we can achieve these outcomes. the caro book that many people are reading this summer talks about great leadership. but it also quotes walter lippmann and james preston u talking about the worst congress we have ever seen in terms of a gridlock. and we overcame that. just as i am optimistic that we will overcome the gridlock on capitol hill today. two ways around that are great leadership, bipartisan leadership, democrats and republicans working together as they did 15 years ago for

from the bays. what's the significance of what happened over the weekend in libya to the situation that we're trying to come to terms with and react to, the killing of the u.s. ambassador, chris stevens, and the attack on our consulate in benghazi? guest: there are really two points we should take away from what's going on in libya. the first is the response to the libyan government and in this case the libyan people actually attacking the terroristis are really quite encouraging, very different from the egyptian response, of course, again. the egyptian government did not denounce the attacks until a couple of days later when it was under pressure, the ruling party called for new protests in libya, very different, immediate denunciation of the attacks, the need to step up the deal esp confrontation with militants. but the second thing we have to remember about libya, this is still an instance in which a different kind of, you know, unofficial response, that is, you know, to put it mildly, a different kind of mob response, one that we like, one that was very much antiterrorist was u

outraged by the attacks on american diplomatic missions in libya and egypt and by the death of an american consulate workers in that gauzy it is disgraceful that the obama administration's first response was not to condemn attacks and our diplomatic missions but to sympathize with those who waged the attacks. that is mitt romney. [applause] [applause] what ever timing, wording or parsing one might want to bring up, one may want to suggest to improve on his remarks, his words had a shock effect, didn't they? they had the shock effect because they were true. when they are condemned so broadly, so almost universally among the establishment, it is likely they are true. [applause] these were true for another reason. what he said, let me read again -- i am outraged by the attacks on the american diplomatic mission in libya and egypt. it is disgraceful, disgraceful. that the obama administration's first response was not to condemn attacks and our diplomatic missions but to sympathize with those who waged the attacks. mr. romney was talking about other things as well when he talked about

-- muammar gaddahfi si gone and teh people of libya are free. the one side, we have a president who has led america again. what is there on the other side? the most inexperienced foreign- policy to some to run a president and vice president in decades. it is not fair to say romney does not have a position on afghanistan. he has every position. he was against setting a date for withdrawal. then he said it was right. then he left the impression that maybe it was wrong to leave so soon. he said it was tragic to leave iraq and then said it was fine. he said we should have intervened in libya sooner. then he ran away from reporters asking questions. then he said the intervention was to aggressive. then he said the world was a better place because of the intervention succeeding. talk about being for this before you are against it. [applause] mr. romney, here is a little of advice. before you debate barack obama on foreign policy, you better finish the debate with yourself.
